Admission Scores

Selection Criteria

We adopt a holistic approach in the assessment of applicants' suitability for teacher education and other complementary discipline programmes. In selecting students for our full-time undergraduate and higher diploma programmes, we take into account their public examination results, band choices, non-academic achievements, school principal's recommendations and interview performance etc. For entry to the specific programmes like Chinese, English, Mathematics, Music, Physical Education and Visual Arts, applicants have to demonstrate a required level of competence in the subject area.

Students nominated under the JUPAS School Principal's Nominations Scheme (SPN) and the University's Undergraduate Programme Nominations Scheme will be considered favourably with good school reference reports and interview performance.
